Nuit Blanche 2013

Creative minds on display and a huge enthusiastic crowd on the streets of our good old Toronto. Loved it all. The shared adventures of discovering art at night, the wonder in people's eyes, the revelry ... it was so much fun.

Balls? Look closer. It's an optical illusion created from the balance of shadow and light and the angle from which I took the photo. These are carton tubes stacked on a truck. Can't remember the artist or title of the project and can't find it on Nuit Blanche site but love the visual effect. It reinforces the fact that art is everywhere around us if we attune our eyes and imagination to see beyond the mundane.
